Yesterday at a "Hispanic town hall" (link), Paul Ryan promoted comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty. This shouldn't be a surprise: fiscal conservatives are all about the money, and there's money to be had by supporting amnesty.
On his Facebook page, Rep. Paul Ryan writes : Senator Rubio is exactly right on the need to fix our broken immigration system. I support the principles he's outlined: modernization of our immigration laws; stronger security to curb illegal immigration; and respect for the rule of law in addressing the complex challenge of the undocumented population. Our future depends on an immigration system that works.
Alleged U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez said on tonight's Eliot Spitzer show on Current TV that Rep. Paul Ryan thinks amnesty is the "right thing to do" ( video: peekURL.com/zjn3fmY ).
From this: (Paul Ryan), who voted against the Obama-backed DREAM Act and has opposed amnesty for most illegal immigrants, said he supported - but hadn't endorsed - the immigration reform efforts of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Paul Ryan - Mitt Romney's choice for running mate - is on the wrong side of the immigration issue. Not only would he harm middle- and working-class Americans and help the wealthy in direct economic ways, but he'd do the same on the immigration front as well.
Rep. Paul Ryan will reportedly be Mitt Romney's choice for vice presidential running mate. If true, that decision is nearly insane.
Tea Party loses another race for the GOP (Paul Ryan, upstate New York, Kathy Hochul, Jane Corwin) - 05/24/11
If you're a Republican Party partisan, the tea parties are a mixed blessing. On the one hand, their insane rantings bring a fresh piquancy to the sometimes staid GOP. On the other hand, they're putting pressure on the GOP to be crazy, extremist, and largely unappealing to moderates. And, they're splitting the vote, even when the "Tea Party" candidate appears to be a fake teapartier. Thus it is in the case of the NY-26 special election from earlier tonight. Democrat Kathy Hochul "defied political experts [who gave] her little chance of success [and] ground out a stunning and surprisingly...
GOP Rep. Paul Ryan recently released a budget plan that would reform various entitlement programs that millions of Americans rely on. My impression is that Ryan's budget does exactly what you'd think it does: help the rich while harming the non-rich and overall putting U.S. society at a worse position than before. Not that the Democrats are any better, of course.
Koch family, U.S. Chamber, businesses met to plan strategy (+Glenn Beck, tea parties, "mobilize citizens for November") - 10/20/10
Twice each year, the Koch family conducts strategy meetings with corporate and thought leaders to plan how to advance their "free market" ideology. ThinkProgress has the guest list and program for their June 2010 meeting (in Aspen), and, while immigration isn't mentioned, many of the known attendees are on the wrong side. I don't normally recommend anything at ThinkProgress, but in this case I'll suggest taking a look at their post and downloading the PDF. The New York Times has a related report here; from that: The participants in Aspen dined under the stars at the top of the gondola run on...
Senators Tom Coburn and Richard Burr and Reps.
Rep. Paul Ryan asked the Congressional Budget Office to estimate how much the stimulus plan would cost if increased funding for the twenty most Democratic Party-friendly provisions in the bill are made permanent.
